Best Things About Getting Old…

Spent the weekend with the in laws – and the grand in laws. Older folk seem really happy, and they also chat a lot. I wanted to talk about the things for us all to look forward to when we get older.

Most of you said things along the lines of – you get wiser/calmer, you become a better cook, you nap more and you tend to watch a lot of quality ‘daytime-ish TV ie. Countdown/Eggheads/Anything on Gold.

As I said in my show not entirely sure CJ should be an Egghead. Is he up to it?

Played a range of tunes, a great track from REM (sob sob) and my record of the week from the mercurial Steely Dan.

Arcade Fire – Month of May
REM – Losing My Religion
Kasabian – Shoot The Runner
Paula Nutini – Candy
Andy Williams – Music to Watch Girls By
Paul McCarrney & Wings – Live and Let Die
Duran Duran – View to a Kill
Superheavy – Miracle Worker
Smokey Robinson – You Really Got a Hold On Me
The Temper Trap – Love Lost
The Temptations – The Way You Do The Things You Do
Steely Dan – Reelin’ In The Years *Record of the Week*
Viva Brother – Darling Buds of May – Great Record, Outstanding TV Programme – Perfick
Muddy Waters – Mannish Boy
Jefferson Airplane – Somebody to Love
Ash – Shining Light
Daft Punk – Around the World
Robin (the pop sensation) – ft Kleerup – With Every Heartbeat
T Rex – 20th Centruy Boy
Neil Young – Old Man

It was grand to spend some time with you. Now I’m going to make some tea.
